in the last few weeks, the price fr

This recalls the history of a farm near
Baltimore which bad been sold th.ee

to the seller's hands in discharge of
the mortgage for unpaid purchase
money. Sooti atier he had sold it the
fourth time he visited the properly
and found the purchaser's wife anil
children gathering acorns. Killing
home the gentleman called out to his
son. "The old place is gone at last"
and it was. The purchaser has grown
wealthy off the land where others had
tailed, by the practice of an industry
which would not even let the acorn
crop go to waste.
If th" parallel holds in the case of
Fincasile, then Botletourt connty,
Virginia, in beginning to gave her
acorn crop, has set out upon the path
of prosperity and wealth.

A Tale of San Francisco.
Hospitality is a virtue, but abuses
of its privileges are so common that
one is tempted to regard it as general
ly better in theory than in practice.
That is to say, it is a virtae to be ex
ercised with caution, and of the truth
of this opinion a Mrs. B., of San Fran
ciso, has been disagreeably convinced.
Mrs. B is described as one of those la
dies moving in the "best circles," and
lately sue was informed by letter that
a beautiful and accomplished niece of
an intimate friend was about to make
her a visit. Glad to welcome an east
ern belle, Mrs. B. determined to omit
nothing that could render her stay
pleasant. In due time Georgie Mande-
ville arrived, and her beauty, her rare
accomplishments, and, above all, her
luxuriuiit golden tresses, became at
once the theme of conversation amoni;

Mrs. B. rejoiced, und to her rejoicing
came the anxious i.icce. What should
she do for a trousseau T she had writ-

receive money. Of course Mrs. B.

ray of laces and other goods was at
iWiss Georgie's disposal. Meantime,
having told her predicament to her
belhrothed, he too had handed his
check for a like amount to his ensla
ver. As they say on the etagp, "Exit
Georgie; enter police." A trunk of
cust off clothing and a profusion ol
golden hair was all that the fictitious
niece but clever swindler had left be
A good story is told of a rather ver
dHiit agricultural laborer, who having
by hook and crook scraped together
fifty dollars, took it to Ins employer,
with a request t.i ti ke charge of it for
him. A year after the laborer sent to
another friend to know what would be
the interest oti it. He as told three
dollars. "Well," said he, "I wish you
would lend me three dollars for a day
or two. My boss has been keeping fif
ty dollars for me a year, and I waul
to pay him the interest for it."
"I am triad," said the Rev. Dr.
Young to t.ie chief of the Little Otta
was, "that you do not drink whisky,
but it grieves me to find that your peo

the chief and he fixed his eye im
pressively on the doctor, which com
muuicated the reproof before he ut
tered it "we Indians use a great deal
of whisky, but we do not make it."
"How do you feel with such a shock
ing looking coot on?'' said a young
clerk, of more tailors' bills than good
sense, one morning. "I feel," said old
Roger, looking at him very steadily
with one eye half closed, as if taking
aim at his victim "I feel, young man,
as if I had a coat on which has been
paid for. I hope you may enjoy .the
luxury some time."

Some fathers are too hard-hearted

his (the futher's) best Sunday razor, to

the razor could hurt the oysters any

the world. This t.he is aud has been
for twenty-five years, without a doubt;
und as the circumstances of her life
become easier, her labor less severe,and
her education better, she will t more
beautiful still. America never pos
seseed a more beautiful generation of
women than she possesses to day, and
there is no doubt that the style of beau
ty is changing to a nobler type. The
characteristic American woman of the
present generation is larger than the
characteristic American woman of the
previous generation. It conies of bet
ter food, of better clothing, better sleep,
more fresh air, and less of hard word
to mothers during those periods when
their vitality is all demanded for their
motherly functions. V vmimn

of symbolism, at any rate, a church
key is surely, in comparison with a
marriage ring, the more suitable in
